Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones Separation Grows Over His Support of Elizabeth Vargas’ Addiction Battle

Catherine Zeta-Jones Separation Grows Over His Support of Elizabeth Vargas' Addiction Battle

On Nov. 6th ABC’s 20/20 anchor Elizabeth Vargas admitted to the world that she like so many others is struggling with alcohol abuse and seeking in-patient treatment. What she didn’t feel compelled to mention at the time was the vital role that ex-lover Michael Douglas played in her decision to get help. It may be kind of a no-brainer because the former couple has remained on good terms in the fifteen years since their split. Plus Michael has battled his own addictions and is part of a family riddled with them so he is well aware of how much rehab can help.

According to the Nov. 25th print edition of National Enquirer there is one person quite unhappy with Michael’s overwhelming need to help his ex and that is his estranged wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones. When she heard that her husband was supporting Elizabeth and had promised to be a solid rock for her, well Catherine lost it. She thought that Michael should be focusing any of his extra energy towards repairing their marriage rather than saving a former flame.

Catherine attempted to demand that Michael take a step back from Elizabeth but he flat out refused. He insisted that he is going to help her through this extremely different time and Catherine will just have to deal with it. Do you think that her way of dealing with it will be going ahead with the divorce? Obviously Michael’s connection to Elizabeth is still ridiculously strong, could there be more than friendship at work here? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

  • Just Say No to Drugs

    As a retired admin. assist. I would like to request that celebs join responsive adults in looking out of the box, and into the lives of our teenagers. Peer group pressure, race discrimination, prestige hungry teachers and principals, nail clawing peers that will do anything to make it, all these weird strange things like to make like they are for real but they are not, and they certainly to not have the designer drugs that can take you to it. What do I care, it none of my business? It is my business and every other person’s business. The latest new drug is supposed to have hit the streets and word has it that it is pure laundry soap. Shoot some of that laundry soap up and you’ll end up with a couple of dead limbs and a dead self if you keep at it. What does that do to attractive celebs? Nothing. Just Chilling? Well, I for one am not a wonder woman celebrity, star of stage and screen, but I am a real live person, not guarding my image, and I care what teens and young adults are going through. “Just Say No to Drugs” was my creation and I have a letter of congrats from Gov. Arnold Swarzeneggar, and President Barack Obama urging me to step up some and get it all out ! Forget and forgive, leave it back in time, and get rockin’, your not selfish, your not a liar, your not all the names that your pushers girlfriends say to you so that you will purchase laundry soap.
